This class is taught in Spanish.
There will be a combination of videos, audio excerpts, pictures/infographics, discussion boards, or music, and, of course, stories all focused on a specific topic.

Activities may include: written or spoken responses in the form of practicing reading/listening comprehension, spoken Q & A/prompts, or writing prompts.
